    Question The "Life's most important questions" thread...

    Feel free to use this thread to post those questions about life, spirituality, philosophy, etc., that involves the more important questions of life and the world around us....

    I'll start it out:

    Why do most cartoon characters always wear the same clothes in every episode? Like in Family Guy, Simpson's, King of the Hill, etc.

    Why is that?

    Why do we park in a driveway, and drive on a parkway?

    Apart from being faster to use the same "clothes" rather than create new clothes all the time, I think it may be to keep the characters familiar and you remember what they look like without taking to much notice of what they are wearing.

    All right, I'm going to risk looking like the nerd because I've actually asked this question before.

    I currently work more with applications like Maya, After Effects and such, but used to do some 2D animation as well. This has also crossed my mind. I was told that back in the day of traditional animation, an artist would need to draw thousands and thousands of images for a few minutes of animation. Drawing the hand this way significantly cut down the drawing time.

    A few have also said that a 5 finger hand would be too realistic, and reality is not the goal - would actually seem odd - on a cartoon.

    That was a rhetorical question, you say? Too bad, you got a real answer!

    Nope. Life in general. Think about it . . .

    Now to answer a few other questions:

    Fist laugh ~ When one caveman hit another one in the crotch with a football shaped rock.

    Answering rhetorical questions ~ Those folks have nothing better to do.

    What shall you do ~ Post on CPF.

    Who pays ~ CPF is free. Though Greta appreciates donations.

    Driving ~ Yes. Yes you can.

    Tea or Coffee ~ Definitely tea, but only in private. Coffee when around other manly men.

    Windy day Kilt-wearer ~ He was manly enough to not not care.

    Paper or plastic ~ Plastic. You can use it for waste basket liner.

    Nose picking ~ No. But nostrils are flexible enough that you can make the finger fit.

    Sterile needles for lethal injections ~ There's a stupid law that says you have to.

    Flip flops ~ There's a pair under my bed.

    Bingo ~ The dog.

    Where are you ~ on the internet.

    NEXT QUESTION!!!

    They're bored with Life and literally have nothing better to do.

    I have so many interests and hobbies I don't even have time to explore everything I want to with all the 'need to do' stuff life entails. I can't remember the last time I was truly bored and it baffles me when I talk to people who tell me they are bored all the time.

    Why a thing/object is always in your way if you dont need it, but if you do need it all of a sudden you dont know where to find it.

    Makes you get mad on that situation.

    Why can't I answer a question like this without my comment turning into a biased and highly offensive rant?

    Ah! A question to which I can give a profound answer . . .

    In my case, it's based on personality type. Numerous hobbies over the years. When I find something that's new to me, I simply devour it! As much info. and experience as I can in the shortest amount of time. I can honestly say that I approach my hobbies with an intensity that some would find just a bit frightening. The problem with that is, once you get full; it happens far sooner than it should. Then the boredom sets in. If another hobby doesn't interest you soon, the boredom simply stays. All the "need to do" stuff becomes mind-numbingly routine, thus boring, in no time at all. Even work itself can become boring if you're too good at it, or if no one at the job cares and thus simply go through the motions.

    As for going out . . . Been there, done that, bored with the same different sets of routines. Going clubbing, find a nice-looking woman, buy her a drink, strike up a conversation. She'll either say yes or no. And they're never the type actually worth getting to know, so there's no potential for future excitement. Out of all my friends, none had a serious relationship with anyone they've met at the club. Then when you get too old for clubbing, there's the Lounge. Which is exactly like the club, only more laid back. Other activities soon lose their luster. Camping is fun at first. Then you realize you have a house or an apartment. And you start to feel silly being out in the woods pretending to be homeless. Any activity you can name . . . Do it often enough, and yes; it becomes boring.

    What can I say, there are folks who live to be 90 and still find exciting things to do. I'm in my mid-30s and I'm bored. (Yes, I realize Life isn't fun and exciting all of the time or even half of the time. But for it to become boring in such a short while, that's definitely something I never realized would happen when I was younger.)

    Because God has a sense of humor.

    Monocrom - I kinda know how you feel. I've been very much that way for years.

    My wife fully expected that I'd be over flashlights by now - I've been on CPF for nearly 3 years now and that's longer than I've stuck with very nearly anything (sans career and relationship)

    I've been slowing down lately and after realizing I was burning my way through hobbies I've consciously tried to avoid said burnout.

    Oh, and don't ever rule out a pub - my wife picked me up at a pub (a decision she regrets to this day, 10 years later)
